Calling all Spider-Man fans! Whether you are a die-hard fan or a family looking for a free way to entertain your aspiring superheroes, stop by Sony Square NYC and be surrounded by all things Spider-Man. In anticipation of the July 7th U.S. theatrical release of Columbia Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Sony Square NYC is providing an experience worthy of a standing ovation. Visitors to the showroom will get the chance to step into Peter Parker’s shoes (and leap off a crane to swing through the air in pursuit of Spider-Man’s nemesis The Vulture) in the Spider-Man: Homecoming VR experience on PlayStation®VR.
I have been reading Marvel comic books for as long as I can remember. One of my favorites has always been the Inhumans. I tend to really like the people from other planets, hence why Guardians of the Galaxy is also another one of my favorite teams. Something about Black Bolt though, has always intrigued me. The fact that by just muttering a word, he can destroy so much, is pretty brilliant. When I first heard that Marvel was going to do something with the Inhumans, I was thrilled. Then we were told the movie was being put on the back burner. All of a sudden, an Inhumans show on ABC was being talked about and I was beyond excited. Medusa and Black Bolt are one of my favorite comic book couples and I cannot wait to see what happens with them.
As I am sure many of you know by now, I am a HUGE Marvel fanatic. I collect the comic books, I collect the toys, I collect the movies – and I even have a few Marvel related tattoos. So I was thrilled to hear today that Sony Music announced the release of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) featuring the music of Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning composer Michael Giacchino. The soundtrack will be released on July 7 and is available for pre-order here.
You all know what a big Marvel fan I am, so of course, I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Black Panther, which hits theaters February 2018. Today Marvel released the poster and I was in awe of it instantly. Chadwick Boseman looks amazing as T’Challa sitting on the throne. He looks very heroic and very true to his character in the comics, which makes me happy. We saw a little bit of him in Captain America: Civil War, but not nearly enough.
As you probably know by now, I am a huge comic book geek – especially when it comes to Marvel Comics. I just can’t get enough. In fact, I was in my local shop today talking about adding some titles to my pull list, and my husband joked that I like anything Marvel. Well, I just called and asked my shop to add RUNAWAYS to my pull list, which starts this coming September. The 2003 series was one of my favorites, so I am really excited to see what this run brings!
TeeBlox is one of my favorite monthly subscription boxes – and I get a lot so that means something. I am a total Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe nerd, and TeeBlox appeals to that. Once a month, it arrives at my door with some great Marvel gear for me. Find out why every Marvel fan needs to subscribe.
At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, we see a cocoon. Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) essentially says she has created something incredible, and she will call him Adam. At this moment in the theater I nearly jumped out of my chair. My mind was BLOWN. I knew right away that she was referring to Adam Warlock, arguably one of the most powerful people in Marvel Comics. If you are wondering, just who is Adam, allow me to help you out. He is a big deal, and I am going to tell you why you should be excited to see him on the big screen.
If you are a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, take it from a comic book nerd like me, there are some books you just HAVE to read. If you want some great movie tie-ins and backgrounds on your favorite characters, these are the ones for you. Ideally, I would love to convince you all to go to your local comic book shop or look online and pick up every single issue that any of the Guardians appear in – but that is asking A LOT, I know. So I put together 5 of my favorite comic books (OK, a few are trade paperbacks) that any Marvel Cinematic Universe fan should pick up.
One of the funniest interviews of the day was our first interview of the day – Michael Rooker (Yondu) and Sean Gunn (Kraglin) in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. These two play a couple of Ravagers and work more closely together than you might think. They had us in stitches nearly the whole interview making it one of my favorites of the day. Apparently Michael Rooker feels the same way because he ended the interview saying some very things to us, “This is the best, this is the pinnacle of all the interviews that we have done. Oh, I could totally do this all day.”
As I am sure you all know by now, I am a total Marvel Fan Girl. I have been reading the comics since I was a little girl so when the MCU started, I was more than excited. My favorite characters were coming to life, and boy did Marvel Studios know how to do it right. So when I got the interview list for the Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 event and saw not only James Gunn on it, but Kevin Fiege too, my heart almost exploded. I wasn’t sure I would be able to get words to come out of my mouth being in the same room as these two geniuses. But what happened after the interview was one of the best moments of my life – more on that later.
